Grannies to march on D.C.

ya gotta love it...
With wheelchairs, walkers, canes and pictures of their grandchildren on their backs, the Granny Brigade was back in Times Square, the scene of their arrest last fall for blocking the entrance to the Military Recruitment Center to stop the war.

This time, they're kicking off a 10-day trek to the nation's capital.

"We want to wake up an apathetic American public," Joan Wile, the Brigade's founder said. "Maybe they're against the war, maybe they're not. But they're totally indifferent."

and they don't seem to have any hesitation about shaking their collective fingers right in george's face...
And the oldest among them, 91-year-old Marie Runyon, would love to speak directly to President Bush to tell him, "you've made the whole world hate us. What you've done is illegal and immoral and I think you need a psychiatrist."

give 'im hell, marie, and, while you're at it, a whack across his backside with a broom...
